Po Lin Yuen Vegetarian Restaurant - Edit

Updated from previous review on Wednesday May 27, 2015

I was in here last weekend (May 2015). I was sitting eating away merrily when I couldn't help but notice the very strong smell of fish. On looking round I was then surprised to see that this was indeed fish. It was the period between lunch and dinner and the staff were on a break. They were sat at the table next to me eating a fish. I don't mean some HK mock fish or taro in pastry shaped like a fish. It was a fish. At the end there was a skeleton of its bones around which they had carefully cut away the fish meat.

I question whether that means that is a genuinely 100% vegetarian restaurant. The customer menu may be all vegetarian. The kitchen certainly doesn't appear to be all vegetarian.

As the other reviewers say there's also a take away place facing the street.

It's like a bunch of other all vego Chinese places in HK. Worth eating from if you are in the area but there's no special reason to make a trip to here if there's a similar place already closer to you.

Cons: Staff cook and eat fish on site

Excellent dim-sum. - Edit

Just had my breakfast.

A bowl of noodles with veggies, mushrooms & 2 pieces of taro cake dim-sum for HK$24 - a little over US$ 3.



Unbelievable value.

I have no idea how they can keep their prices so low.

Satisfying breakfasts for less than HK$ 25.

Many types of dim-sum for HK$ 2 per piece.

This is a great little cafe / restaurant with a very friendly crew running it.

I drop in for my breakfast at least twice each week.

They have a display cabinet stocked with packs of vegan instant noodles & more from Viet Nam - also at crazy low prices - ideal for curing late night munchie attacks.

Busy, busy, busy 12.00 to 13.30.

Shared tables.

English menu.

delicious food at bargain prices - Edit

Fantastic restaurant. For 3 of us it cost under 200HKD which is more than I have paid for one person in other places. Does a range of Chinese vegetarian meals, including many fake meat dishes, and tofu and vegetable dishes. The menu comes in English and Cantonese.

Pros: good value, tasty food
